Hackney Backhouse is a brave, imaginative and contemporary back-garden house that volunteers itself to the street through louvered screens of weathering steel, affording fleeting glimpses into the house to passers-by. The two-story, three-bedroom family home is neatly tucked onto an 11m by 8m site in a Hackney Conservation Area, formerly occupied by a run-down garage and workshop. Keen to avoid divorcing the house from its context and its neighborhood, Guttfield Architecture designed a house with a direct visual relationship with the street – the house is part of the street and the street part of the house. A screen of vertical corten louvers between the house and the street is intended as a simple device to moderate this two-way relationship, firstly by actively engaging the street and secondly, by bringing the street into the house, all while retaining privacy where needed.Save this picture!© Will ScottSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Will ScottTo actively engage passers-by, the vertical louvers have a kinked profile which gives the screen a dynamic, twisting appearance that might catch the eye of a pedestrian and in doing so cause them to glimpse into the house. The shape, spacing, and orientation of the louvers carefully manipulate views in and out of the house – pedestrian passers – by are offered a peek into the house, whereas cars and bikes traveling at a higher speed struggle to see in at all. If somebody wants to stop and gaze into the house, they can. However, the louvers are angled away from the nearest houses on the street meaning there is no line-of-sight and the screen is designed to preserve privacy in areas of the house where it is important. The screens also bring the street into the house, drawing the unpredictable external environment into the interior architecture.Save this picture!© Will ScottThe main living spaces enjoy a rich backdrop of passers-by, weather conditions and neighboring buildings, all framed by the corten screen. Beyond the corten screens, a glazed front door and floor-to-ceiling glazing in the ground floor living areas continue the visual connection with the outside. The layout and glazing are designed to make the external materials of brick and corten visible from and almost part of, the internal spaces. This adds richness and drama to the interiors, which in contrast to the exterior, are restrained, mostly white surfaces. During the day the rich tones of the south-facing weathered steel screen are highlighted by the natural light, which casts striking shadows onto the clean walls of the living spaces. At night, the artificially-lit interior spaces come to life and enliven the streetscape.Save this picture!© Will ScottInside, the large areas of glazing (which can be used without the need for curtains or blinds to provide privacy) make the lightwells feel part of the ground floor layout and help the plan feel more open and spacious. The ground floor is largely designed as one open-plan space to make the best use of the limited space on the small site, containing distinct areas for the living room, dining, kitchen and entrance hall. Seamlessly detailed roof lights featuring concealed lighting are positioned in the corners of the plan farthest from the screens, bringing additional light down into the dining area, living area, and stairwell. Basement level, which houses three bedrooms and two bathrooms, is arranged around two secluded external courtyards which allow ample daylight into the spaces. The courtyard spaces also provide vital external amenity and cycle storage space.Save this picture!© Will ScottThe house has a materials palette of ochre brickwork, anodized aluminum windows, weathering corten steel, concrete floor tiles and both oak and white joinery. Tactile fittings such as handles and handrails are picked out in brass. A lightweight suspended white steel staircase features inset concrete tile treads and a solid brass handrail. A white steel ship’s stair provides a means of escape from the larger lightwell in the event of a fire. Sustainability has been carefully considered with the low energy house boasting photovoltaic solar panels, super-insulation, triple glazing, and underfloor heating. A sedum green roof reduces water run-off from the house which fills the entirety of the plot. Guttfield Architecture, a young architecture practice based in Berkshire, began to consider the relationship between the house and the street at the outset of the project.Save this picture!© Will ScottAnalyzing the historic planning consent of the site revealed a design that, like many back-garden houses in London, almost completely turned its back on the street, effectively hiding itself behind a wall and taking light only from roof lights and internal courtyards. To preserve privacy, views into the house from the street were all but eliminated, meaning the house would have had limited outlook and would have felt confined and disconnected from the street. The house, with a gross internal area of 112 sqm, was completed within a strict £500,000 budget -especially challenging as the design required a building to the full extent of the site, up against neighboring buildings and the road, and given basement construction is inherently more complicated and expensive.Save this picture!© Will ScottProject gallerySee allShow lessAL_A Unveils New Paisley Museum Transformation in ScotlandArchitecture NewsDesigners Imagine Bamboo Colony on MarsArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/923890/hackney-backhouse-guttfield-architecture Clipboard “COPY” Year:  Houses Price & Myers Hackney Backhouse / Guttfield Architecture Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeGuttfield ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionLondonEnglandUnited KingdomPublished on August 30, 2019Cite: “Hackney Backhouse / Guttfield Architecture” 30 Aug 2019.

Switzerland releases former banker who was WikiLeaks informant

first_img Former banker Rudolf Elmer has been freed after seven months in pre-trial detention on suspicion of violating Switzerland’s bank secrecy laws. He could have been held until October. He was not told the reason for his release on 25 July or whether the charges could be dropped.Elmer was arrested for passing two CDs to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange that purportedly contained details of offshore bank accounts. However, according to recent reports, one of the CDs was empty and the other contained information of little importance.—————————————————-Whistleblowing banker arrested again 20th January 2011Former banker Rudolf Elmer was arrested in Zurich yesterday evening on suspicion of another breach of Switzerland’s bank secrecy laws after handing two CDs purportedly containing offshore bank account date to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London on 17 January.Elmer’s arrest came just hours after a court found him guilty of coercion and a separate violation of banking laws in connection with an earlier leak of documents allegedly showing that Bank Julius Baer, a privately-owned bank he used to work for, helped its wealthy clients to evade taxes.The court imposed a fine of 5,500 euros that he would only have to pay if he broke the law again in the next two years.——————————————————————————————–Former WikiLeaks informant due to appear before Zurich court this week17.01.2011 August 16, 2011 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Switzerland releases former banker who was WikiLeaks informant News Organisation RSF_en Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders calls for the withdrawal of the prosecution of WikiLeaks informant Rudolf Elmer, a former executive of a privately-owned Swiss bank, who is due to appear before a Zurich court on 19 January on charges of coercion and violating bank secrecy laws. He could face up to three years in prison if convicted.Elmer leaked documents to WikiLeaks in 2008 allegedly showing that Bank Julius Baer helped wealthy clients evade taxes by opening offshore accounts. He denies violating Swiss banking laws because the files he provided to WikiLeaks came from the bank’s Cayman Islands subsidiary, for which he worked for eight years.A Californian court closed WikiLeaks’ US-based website for two weeks in 2008 at the request of Bank Julius Baer, which said it was being used for the “unlawful dissemination of stolen bank records and personal account information of its customers.”The bank withdrew its complaint against WikiLeaks a few months later, after protests from many free speech groups, but never abandoned its attempts to have Elmer prosecuted.Julius Baer spokesman Jan Vonder Muehll has confirmed that the bank is one of the plaintiffs in the case against Elmer but stressed that the case would focus on the release of data to Swiss media, not their publication on WikiLeaks. Elmer is also alleged to have sent various newspapers, including the Swiss business daily Cash, a CD in 2005 containing the same information he later gave to WikiLeaks. last_img read more

The leakage of the gas has reportedly affected people within a radius of about 3 kilometers. Many people could be seen lying on roads while some complained of difficulty in breathing and rashes on their bodies. The Commission has observed that though prima-facie, as of now, there are no reports regarding human error or negligence but the fact that so far at least 8 innocent citizens have lost their lives and thousands have fallen sick, is indeed a serious issue of violation of human rights. Right to life of the victims has been grossly violated. At a time when the human lives across the country are at stake due to spread of Covid-19 virus and everyone is forced to stay indoor, the gruesome tragedy has come as bolt from the blue for the people. Accordingly, the Commission has issued a notice to the Chief Secretary, Government of Andhra Pradesh calling for a detailed report in the matter including status of the rescue operation, medical treatment provided to the people fallen sick and relief and rehabilitation provided by the state authorities to the affected families. A notice has also been issued to the Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh to inform within four weeks about registration of FIRs in the matter and status of the investigation being conducted. The Commission also considered it appropriate to bring the matter to the notice of the Union Ministry of Corporate Affairs and has asked through its Secretary to examine whether the norms laid down under relevant provisions of the law are being implemented at the particular industrial unit and to submit a report to the Commission. Responses from all the these authorities are expected within four weeks. As per early reports in the media, the incident has occurred at a chemical plant at LG Polymers Industry at RR Venkatapuram near Naiduthota area of the district around 3.00 AM today on 7th May,2020. The unit manufactures polystyrene and its co-polymers. An evacuation drive has reportedly been started by the police authorities and the District Collector is monitoring the situation. The NDRF and SDRF teams are also deployed in the area as mentioned in the news report.Next Storylast_img read more

Preliminary analysis of life within a former subglacial lake sediment in Antarctica

first_imgSince the first descriptions of Antarctic subglacial lakes, there has been a growing interest and awareness of the possibility that life will exist and potentially thrive in these unique and little known environments. The unusual combination of selection pressures, and isolation from the rest of the biosphere, might have led to novel adaptations and physiology not seen before, or indeed to the potential discovery of relic populations that may have become extinct elsewhere. Here we report the first microbiological analysis of a sample taken from a former subglacial lake sediment in Antarctica (Lake Hodgson, on the Antarctic Peninsula). This is one of a number of subglacial lakes just emerging at the margins of the Antarctic ice sheet due to the renewed onset of deglaciation. Microbial diversity was divided into 23.8% Actinobacteria, 21.6% Proteobacteria, 20.2% Planctomycetes and 11.6% Chloroflexi, characteristic of a range of habitat types (Overall, common sequences were neither distinctly polar, low temperature, freshwater nor marine). Twenty three percent of this diversity could only be identified to “unidentified bacterium”. Clearly these are diverse ecosystems with enormous potential.last_img read more

New Harmony Gallery To Host Print Invitational Inspired By 1800’s Publication

first_imgThe New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is hosting the exhibition, The Disseminator of Useful Knowledge Print Invitational and Exchange now through April 8. Works in the exhibition were inspired from the 1800’s New Harmony publication, The Disseminator of Useful Knowledge.Curated by the University of Southern Indiana professor of printmaking, Brett Anderson, the exhibition will feature artists from across the nation, providing an excellent sample of contemporary printmaking in the United States. All contributing artists, including USI students, alumni and faculty, will have an opportunity to sell 12 copies of their prints at $30 each. Proceeds will benefit the Gallery.The complete invitational includes works by Becky Alley, Brett Anderson (USI faculty), Marty Azevedo, John Begley, Stephen Black, Jim Bryant, Anne Burton, Justin Cecil (current USI student), Susanna Crum, Benjy Davies, Kenny DeMoss (USI alum), Laura Drapac, Jon Goebel (USI alum), Nicole Hand, Garry Holstein (Gallery director), Wesley Kramer, Beauvais Lyons, Michael McGovern, Andrew Mullally, Ashley Nason, Erika Navarrete (USI faculty), Chad Nelson, Howard Paine, Joel Peck, Nathan Pietrykowski (USI alum), Endi Poskovic, Rudy Salgado, Blake Sanders, Hannah Sanders, Tessa Shackleford, Christopher Wallace, Valerie Wallace and Dillon Wire (current USI student).More on the inspiration behind the exhibitThe Disseminator of Useful Knowledge was a printed journal produced every two weeks in New Harmony in the 1800s. Published by William Maclure, the founder of the Working Men’s Institute, the periodical focused on natural sciences and the social and political affairs of a young America. Its mission was to spread useful knowledge to young people both in New Harmony and abroad.  The Disseminator of Useful Knowledge was used as inspiration for the artists in the current Gallery exhibition.“This journal was a nonstandard or new form of communication,” said Garry Holstein, director of the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art. “Using it as inspiration, the artists went in different directions. Some took it as a break from the standard experience. Others developed art pieces that can be taken as ‘faux history’ or a way to reevaluate how you view the world. They used the idea of, ‘where do we get our information from?’”Social media involvement for visitorsGallery visitors have an opportunity to be “curator for the day” as they visit the current print exhibition. A dedicated space in the Gallery is available for visitors to create a mini-exhibition of prints from current and previous print collections. Visitors can select up to nine prints, hang their collection in the dedicated space and share their exhibition on social media using the hashtag #NHGCA.A closing reception for the exhibition will be held at the gallery from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. The Disseminator of Useful Knowledge Print Invitational and Exchange is free and open to the public.The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is a program within the University of Southern Indiana’s Outreach and Engagement and is located at 506 Main Street in New Harmony, Indiana. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
